Not quite sure how I became a contributor of this blog but I think I can take on the task. Seeing that it has been years since the last post I think this is something we need to bring back to life, But I need to know people are following and what you would be interested in learning about? Hearing about? Do you want events posted? What I can I do help you and make this a successful blog.
I personally have been knitting approx 6-7 years and love it. Although I don't get to do it as much as I would like I would be more than happy to help in anyway I can.
Let me know what I can do to help!

Get Ready! The 2008 Peninsula 2 Pier LYS Shop Hop has been scheduled for September 18-21. Join 19 outstanding local yarn stores from Burlingame to Carmel for this fun weekend event.
Visit each of the participating shops between September 18 and 21 and collect passport stamps at each of them. Build your stash and collect inspiration along the way.

No purchase is necessary to have your passport stamped.
Turn in your completed passport at the last shop you visit. This MUST be done during the LYS Shop Hop. If your passport contains stamps from all of the participating shops, you’ll be in the running for our fabulous grand prize!
Even if you don’t make it to all of the shops, you still have a chance to win in a raffle drawing by turning in your passport with 12 or more stamps!
Those with 19 stamps are eligible for the drawing for a $500 gift certificate to the store of the winner’s choice.
Those with 15 or more stamps are eligible for the drawing for a $300 gift certificate to the store of the winner’s choice.

Nine Rubies Knitting has been fortunate to have a number of top designers and authors come to the shop in 2007. We've heard from many customers that they would have loved to work on socks with Nancy Bush, learned valuable tips from Lily Chin, learned combination knitting from Annie Modesitt or modular knitting from Iris Schreier. Alas, these classes were all during the week. Well, we've listened to our customers and will be doing workshops on the weekend. Melissa has taught these classes several times at Stitches and the TKGA shows. Now's your chance to enjoy them in the cozy atmosphere here at the shop.
Here's the schedule:
Saturday, January 26th
9:00 am - 12:00 pm: Basic Pattern Drafting ($70 plus materials)
1:00 pm - 4:00 pm: Crochet for Cowards ($70 plus $20 materials fee payable to the instructor)
Sunday, January 27th

And just like last year, we will be having the annual customer trunk show. Bring anything you’ve made since Nine Rubies opened and we will display it in the front window. Or just come and admire what other people have made and be inspired by your fellow knitters. Stay tuned for additional events and games that we will add between now and then.
